  • Poster: B

Review:

Sure, it's a commonplace poster, but I love the blurred light trail that looks like a city skyline. Paired with the theme-centered images at the bottom, it works much better than I would have expected.

  • Trailer: B-

Review:

It's a story that doesn't seem at all original, yet Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon make it look like so much fun. It could be a good time-waster, but I'm doubtful it will be anything more.

Oscar Prospects:

The trailer itself even suggests Richard Gere for an Oscar nomination, but I doubt the film makes much of impression to give him much more than a perfunctory push that fails.
